When darkly arranged cellos battle for supremacy with hopeful and aspirational synthesizer sounds in a song in which an angry voice is escorted by energetic drums and stirring bass it reflects the dialectic inherent in the lyrics. “To The Surface” by Hope Will Lead. The emotional spectrum at the boiling point of emotional pain can be very broad. Profound mortification and the secret knowledge of one’s own superiority. Newly acquired freedom accompanied by neediness. “To The Surface” casts all this into one bubbling form yet remains as clear as ice cold water. Sensitively moody rock.
